Looking pretty good! Poured a nice layer of brown head, not too thick really. ok retention. Extremely dark appearance. A bold, strong taste of roasted malts, dark coffee, and chocolate flavours abound. Almost the same for aroma, but more apparent is the coffee and hints of the alcohol coming through. Mouthfeel had some thickness like a watered down syrup or molasses (not as thick obviously). Goes down pretty easy. Nice sweet aftertaste as well as good bitterness in the finish. Love it!

Olfato bastante intenso e adocicado. Paladar caramelizado e um after taste duradouro. Faltou um algo a mais para se destacar.

Well rounded and perfectly balanced. Coffee expresso nose. Malted expresso in mouth. Full, full body. Long aftertaste of coffee and cocoa. No sugar, no bitternes. One of the best beers I’ve ever had.

Bottle to pint glass
Coffee, sweet and roasted malts, light caramel, and licorice. Dark brown with some tiny effervescence and a creamy almost brown mottled head. Taste is coffee, chocolate, toasted malt, and tons of bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
after years of enjoying it, I thought is was time to finally revue it! As always, a lovely roast coffee nose with a touch of vanilla. The coffee profile is smoother in the taste profile, augmented by a creamy smoothness, solid malt background, a hint of bubble gum, some hops and dark berries. The blending is impeccable, the body rich and smooth, and the aftertaste true to the initial taste profile. Understated professional brewing.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, from end of 2007, 7 years old. Pours in deep black body with low persistent brown head. Aroma is just amazing right away, full of caramel, toffee, coffee, very smooth and easy. Taste has smooth dark chocolate caramel sweetness with well balanced coffee bitterness, not astringent at all. Light woody notes, coffee sweetness persists in the after taste. Amazing balance. Texture is soft, smooth, light oily, body is full, soft medium carbonation.
